Agnes Etherington Art Centre invites you to connect with your creativity through this accessible artist-led workshop.

As an artist who works in printmaking, painting, and public murals, Chrissy Poitras has had to become comfortable adapting her practice on the fly. In this class she shares her favourite processes for seamlessly transitioning between digital concept and finished piece. Using digital drawing programs can make it easy to adjust the scale, color and design of your work before ever putting paint or ink to paper.

“For a long time I worked in a sketchbook, drafting ideas and scribbling down notes. While I loved that process, I found it challenging and time-consuming to transition my drawn images to screenprint or mural design. To address these hurdles, I’ve spent the past four years working digitally to create images and sketches for my pattern-making, mural work, oil paintings, and screenprints. In this class you learn how to effortlessly take your ideas from the screen to the canvas. We work through a series of exercises that show you my setup, process and workflow in the program Procreate; all of these strategies and techniques can be applied to your favourite digital drawing program.” – Chrissy Poitras
